OBJECTIVE: To investigate the microanatomic basis of the pudendal-thigh flap and provide the anatomic basis for clinical application. METHODS: Skin microdissection of the pudendal regions was performed on 11 adult cadavers (22 sides). Then, the clinical way was simulated to obtain the flaps, and the vessels and nerves contained in them were surveyed. After that, the tissues in the deep part were dissected, and the vessels and nerves were traced back to their origins...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the utility of electromyographic study of the bulbocavernosus muscle. METHODS: 126 impotent patients were evaluated by physical examination and neuroandrologic profile. The physical examination consisted in an exploration of the anal tone and the bulbocavernosus reflex. The neuroandrologic profile consisted in selective electromyography of the bulbocavernosus muscle, the determination of the S2-S4 evoked potentials, somatosensory potential of the pudenal nerve, electromyography of cavernous smooth muscle (SPACE) sympathetic skin response and cystometry...

Pudenal somatosensory evoked potential (PSEP) and bulbocavernosus reflex (BCR) testing have been reported to be useful in the evaluation of erectile dysfunction and neurogenic bladder. 461 patients with sexual dysfunction were studied to determine the usefulness of the above tests. Abnormality of PSEP was found significantly in upper motor neuron (UMN) type spinal cord patients and average prolonged P1 latency was 47.4 +/- 9.8 msec. Lower motor neuron (LMN) type spinal cord patients revealed great abnormality in BCR latency with an average value of 44...

PURPOSE: Men become impotent when exposed to hyperprolactinemia. To clarify its mechanisms the effects of intracorporal infusion of prolactin on electrically induced penile erection were evaluated in 12 male dogs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prolactin (10 micrograms./ml.) or control saline was directly infused into the corpus cavernosum penis 5 minutes before electrical pulse stimulation of the pelvic nerve and the intracorporal pressure was monitored. RESULTS: In 8 dogs erection was markedly suppressed or completely abolished by prolactin...

Bladder neuropathy was diagnosed in 3 patients with systemic vasculitis (temporal arteritis: 1 case; periarteritis nodosa: 2 cases). Clinical characteristics were: dysuria, diminished or abolished bladder sensation leading to indolent bladder retention. Urodynamic investigation showed hypotonic and underactive detrusor, increased detrusor compliance, hyposensitive bladder, and/or overactive urethral closure. Needle electrode examination showed signs of denervation of periurethral muscles; sacral evoked latencies were increased, favouring pudenal nerve alterations...

The expression of neuropeptides galanin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and substance P was compared after injury to somatic (sciatic, pudendal) and visceral (pelvic) nerves. Studies in normal rats and the mutant rat 'mutilated foot' suggested that galanin increases in sensory but not sympathetic fibres after sciatic nerve injury, while VIP appears to increase in both sensory and sympathetic fibres, and substance P to decrease in sensory fibres. A direct comparison of neuropeptide changes after somatic and visceral nerve injury was made in the cat dorsal sacral spinal cord, where both pudenal (somatic) and pelvic (visceral) afferents terminate...

In various neurologic and non-neurologic diseases inappropriate hypertonicity of the external sphincter during micturition may cause outlet obstruction. Heretofore therapy for these disorders has been surgical: pudenal neurectomy or external sphincterotomy. These procedures are not without complication (incontinence, impotence, hemorrhage). A medical approach to this disorder is therefore warranted. In a selected group of patients with external sphincter spasm diagnosed by concitant sphincter electromyography, cystometrography, and voiding cystourethrography, dantrolene sodium (Dantrium) therapy was instituted...

Study of the urethral pressure profile and perineal floor electromyogram in 12 dogs subjected to colonic resection, abdominal vascular stripping, and pudenal nerve transection suggest that specific defects in urethral continence function may follow pelvic and retroperitoneal surgical dissection. These alterations, attributable to damage of the pudendal nerves and the sympathetic fibers in the posterior peritoneum, must be accurately evaluated before treatment of postoperative urodynamic problems.
